Waste firms write to ministers over landfill tax changes


It is clear that HMRC has sought to prevent abuses of the tax system because of the shredding of non-haz waste and mixing it with soil based fines, rather than shredded waste alone being the problem as that is subject to the higher rate. What is not understood by many is that all trommel fines are now subject to the higher rate if they are from a transfer station. Of soil based materials only subsoils benefit from the lower rate. The actual increase in skip prices has not passed the full landfill tax increase on to customers.
